Challenge Reminder

Hi Everyone! Candice on the blog today to remind you of our monthly blog challenge. On the first of the month, a new Poppystamps Challenge is announced with a central theme. Each Wednesday throughout the month, members of the design team will provide samples of inspiration, for you to play along for a chance to win a prize.

2021-01

This month's central theme is Monochrome. Monochrome is defined as a project created in shades of black and white or in varying tones of one color.  To participate in this month's challenge keep it simple by creating in shades of black white and grey or in ombre shades of any color you like.   You can choose any occasion or event - all types of projects welcome including but not limited to cards, page layouts, tags, gifts, home decor and more!   It's your choice, just be sure to use at least one Poppystamps image (stamp or die) on your project! 

For my challenge project, I created a very simple black and white monochrome card using scraps of black and white cardstock from my stash along with the Memory Box stamp set Peony Garden Corner. To begin, I randomly stamped the leaf cluster image onto a piece of 4.25 x 5.5 inch of white cardstock in onyx black versafine ink to create by own patterned paper.

For added interest, I placed small black dots in between the leaf images of the pattern using a black Sharpie marker.

Next I cut 4 strips of black cardstock into the varying sizes of 1 inch, 1/2 inch, .25 inch and .75 inch and adhered them to a 4.5 x 3.25 inch of white cardstock where I first cut and adhered the stitch rectangle border to the white cardstock piece. 

Then I stamped the sentiment hello from the stamp set on the 4.5 x 3.25 inch piece of cardstock and adhered it the leaf image stamped background with some 3M form tape.  Lastly I stamped a portion of the Peony Garden Border image onto a piece of scrap white cardstock with Versafine onyx black ink using my Misti Stamping too.

Then I die cut the single floral image and leaf with a medium circle die from my stash. I adhered the flower image to my card with some 3M form tape for added dimension. To finish the card I added a few crystal clear Nuvo Drops.

Challenge Reminder
by Sue McRae

20201221_130948c

Hello everyone! I’m here with a reminder about Poppystamps January Challenge, Monochrome. This has to be one of my favourite colour schemes because I’m not so great at using lots of different colours on one card (unless it’s a rainbow).

January 2021

Monochrome is defined as a project created in shades of black and white or in varying tones of one color.  To keep it simple you can create in shades of black white and grey or in ombre shades of any color you like (with the addition of black and white).   You can choose any occasion or event - all types of projects welcome including but not limited to cards, page layouts, tags, gifts, home decor and more!   It's your choice, just be sure to use at least one Poppystamps image (stamp or die) on your project! 

For my card I die cut the Winged Bird Collage from white card stock and then die cut the Whittle Spinner Background three times around the bird.

20201221_130955c

I took four colours of teal card stock and cut them into ¼” strips and adhered them to the back of the bird. I really love how the stripey colours make the bird pop and seem like it’s flying.

I created a circular frame using two nesting dies from the Circle Basics die set and added that around the focal piece.

20201221_131017c

The sentiment is the Doodle Happy Birthday die cut three times from card stock so it’s nice and thick. I thought this would make an excellent masculine card so I didn’t add any embellishments.

20201221_30917c

Now it’s your turn to play along with our challenge. Create a project following the theme, use at least one Poppystamps image or die, and link it up here.  The design we love best will receive our winner badge to proudly display on their blog, and one lucky random winner will receive a prize.  You don't have to have a blog to play.  You can link to any online gallery.   In fairness to other players, we reserve the right to remove entries that do not use at least one Poppystamps image.   We ask that you link a maximum of 3 entries to each challenge.   You are welcome to link your design to other challenges.  Grab our badge to post on your blog post or sidebar!

I can’t wait to see your projects!

Challenge Reminder - Anything BUT a card
by Candice Crawford

IMG_2877

Hello Friends! It is Candice here today to remind you about our monthly challenge. This month the challenge is to create Anything But a card. Next to making cards, my next favorite project to make are gift tags.  For this month's challenge I am sharing with you a Christmas tag that is clean and simple and easy to mass produce. I hope you get a chance to join us in the challenge as you might just be the lucky winner! 

2020-12

Want to play? 

The rules are simple - just create a project following this month's theme, use at least one Poppystamps image or die, and link it up here.  The design we love best will receive our winner badge to proudly display on their blog, and one lucky random winner will receive a prize.  You don't have to have a blog to play.  You can link to any online gallery.   In fairness to other players, we reserve the right to remove entries that do not use at least one Poppystamps image.   We ask that you link a maximum of  3 entries to each challenge.   You are welcome to link your design to other challenges.  Grab our badge to post on your blog post or sidebar!

To create this tag, I started by die cutting the Double Stitch Tag Frame base from a sheet of 6x6 pattern paper from the Christmas Plaid paper pad.  This die cuts out both a tag and a frame. I simply paper piece the tag and coordinating frame back together as one piece on to a sheet of white cardstock and fussy cut the tag and punch a hole in the center with a handle held hole punch. 

00F7739D-A1AE-4C97-BB75-472E9FAE70D4-AD8A1E7F-820F-46D0-B310-D033F3E722F8

Next I cut the Stained Glass Snowflake Background from a piece of Red Glitter Cardstock and the coordinating Stained Glass Snowflake from a piece of Gold Metalic Paper. I then adhered the Framed snowflake on top of the glittered snowflake piece. These two dies can be used both separately and together to create stunning snowflake images for your holiday projects.

Next I stamped the Merry and Bright Sentiment from the new Christmas Quotes stamp set with Versamark ink onto a scrap piece of black cardstock and heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder and my heat gun. I die cut the sentiment strip with the coordinating die that comes along with the stamp set.

To assemble the tag, I adhered the layered snowflake onto the tag base with some foam tape. Then added the sentiment strip on top of the layered snowflake also with some foam tape. To finish the tag I added some red satin ribbon to the top of the tag with a piece of black and white bakers twine. 

I hope you have enjoyed today's project and found inspiration. 

Now it's your turn!  Need a little more motivation? How about a prize?  The winner (chosen at random) of this challenge will receive a $20 Gift Certificate to spend on their favorites from the store!
